Thanks Doctor. I’m just trying to get up to speed on the problems and ‘politics’ here. Feel free to pm/email me whenever.August 17, 2009 at 6:56 pm #409352
the front page needs updating, there is no wiki and padding in that “About” box would be nice.August 17, 2009 at 7:53 pm #409353
Speaking of the Wiki, I’d like to know if it has been backed up somewhere? Personally, I wouldn’t want a Wiki to be on the site again, but there were some useful articles on there that could be added to the site.
Anyway, Joe (I hope you don’t mind if I call you that) I’m currently working on a list of things I’d like changed and added, and I’ll PM you when I have that finished (expect it somewhat soon).
Glad to hear that something will be done around here.August 17, 2009 at 8:50 pm #409354
90% of the time the middle section of the site (the content background) doesn’t load. Does this happen do anybody else?August 17, 2009 at 10:45 pm #409360
Hmmm… I’ve yet to have that happen to me. Have you tried deleting your cookies in the browsing history?August 18, 2009 at 8:17 pm #409376
OK well, a lot of the low hanging fruit has been addressed. Please note:
[ ] No Page titles within
[X]Removed Wiki Text on About Box
[X]Added some padding to About Box
[X] On forum based pages there is no margin at the top of the page.
[X] White bits on the logo make it look unproffesional.
[X] “BrickFilms.com” rather than “Brickfilms.com”
[ ] Tutorial hover glow is darker than the rest of the links.
[X] When there is an invalid ID on the Film Directory there is no error message displayed.
[ ] On the tutorial page apparently the ratings are supposed to be clicked to allow the user to rate
the tutorial. The link does nothing.
[X] On the contests page the left hand panel cuts away from the main content and it looks horrible.
[X] (ignored) The footer is made of unnessicary images (3 in total) when it can be done with one.
[X] (ignored) The footer image does not smoothly join up with the body background.
[X] On the contests page when there is no contest no warning is displayed, there is just no content.
[X] (ignored) Bad markup.
[X] (ignored) Several improvements to code efficiency and design could be made.
[ ] Several members are administrators when they clearly shouldn’t (for instance, “America”, “Bicycle Repair Man”)
[ ] There are a few people who prefer the “prosilver” default design.
[ ] There is a rather noticeable difference in the thickness of the outer shadow at the top of the navigation bar.
[X] same for http://brickfilms.com/films/YourFilms if your not logged inAugust 21, 2009 at 3:43 pm #409423
Joe has informed me that a new skin is being made for the forums that will look more like BF2.0. He said that he is going to start there and see where that goes, and if the whole site needs to be reworked to be more like BF2.0 to make people happy, then he will move towards that goal.August 21, 2009 at 3:56 pm #409424
And they’re using the files I provided right?August 21, 2009 at 4:46 pm #409426

Just to clarify, I will discuss reskinning the whole site with management.September 3, 2009 at 7:39 pm #409615
So…is any work being done?
